Born in Dublin in 1917, Brian Boydell was one of Ireland's major 20th century composers. As a musicologist, he published seminal research on music in 18th century Dublin. As a broadcaster, performer, adjudicator, public lecturer, an often outspoken agitator for music, singing teacher, Professor of Music at Trinity College Dublin, one of the founders of the Music Association of Ireland and long-time member of the Arts Council, his influence on music and music education in Ireland was significant. An honorary DMus of the National University of Ireland (1974) and Fellow of the Royal Irish Academy of Music (1990), he was elected to Aosdána, the affiliation of creative artists in Ireland, in 1984.
To mark his centenary, a conference will be held on Friday 23/Saturday 24 June 2017 in Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin, with a recital of his music in the Royal Irish Academy of Music, to re-evaluate his contributions to Irish musical, artistic and academic life, and their place within the wider contexts of musical, cultural and artistic developments in Ireland in the 20th century. Confirmed speakers are Professor Barra Boydell, who will give a special address, and Peter Murray, Director of the Crawford Art Gallery Cork, who will present a guest lecture on Brian Boydell's paintings.
Proposals are invited for individual papers, joint papers, lecture recitals, themed sessions, and panel discussions. For more details of areas for consideration, please visit the CFP page of the conference website: https://boydell100.wordpress.com/call-for-papers/
